H2O Careers

The H2O Careers suite of programs provides high school students with an understanding of the work required to deliver superior water and resource recovery services to the community. 
 
This long-standing program focuses on hands-on learning and careers in water while providing students a chance to use their creativity and problem-solving skills to solve real problems that water professionals face. 
 
Due to the popularity of this program, and a desire to engage older students, there are now two programs available. 
  1. Water Works Academy is a program that introduces students in 9th-12th grades to the work done at a water utility. Students learn about basic infrastructure, meters, water towers and water quality. 
  2. H2O Engineers is a more in-depth program where 11th-and 12th-grade students dig deeper into the engineering principles that help a water utility function. Students learn about flow and pressure, infrastructure design and planning, and the role of technology and innovation in the water sector. 

These programs are one-day sessions accommodating groups of 15 – 20 students. Please contact communityoutreach@wsscwater.com if you would like to obtain additional information for your group.
